1946 Alcatraz Menu

This printed menu for a week in September of 1946 doesn't look half bad. Lots of courses, three square meals, different offerings every day -at Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary in San Francisco. Of course, anyone who has ever eaten at an institution, like a school, knows that the printed version and the actual product delivered can vary immensely. Link  -via Laughing Squid

We were told they could eat as much as they wanted, but were punished if they left any food on their plate. Overfed prisoners are easier to control, I guess.
